43 / Anger & Revenge

If revenge is a dish best served cold, this is an icy feast

If revenge is a dish best served cold, the Anger & Revenge issue is an icy feast. The meanest batch of essays CNF has ever published includes a post-divorce bonfire; post-traumatic stress; an assassination attempt; a kidnapping plot; Dick Cheney, and more. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Plus, Buzz Bissinger talks about waking up angry, how he chooses his subjects, and why he feels comfortable not being objective; Ned Stuckey-French makes a case for expanding the essay canon; Anthony Aycock stretches out on the page; and Phillip Lopate gets lost in the library.
